1999 vs. 2002 proof clad set prices

Post by Tom » Wed, 28 Dec 2005 14:35:43



How come the 1999 proof set price is so much higher
than the 2002 set when the mintage for the 1999 set
is so much higher than the 2002 set?

Are these mintage figures unreliable or is something
else happening here?

This is something that is often debated, and there is
no definitive answer.  Suggestions include initial
ordering limits; quantities destroyed by improper
storage in warehouse; first year of FSQ program
produced larger demand; and wide dispersion
(related to ordering limits).

First year of a new program. That would be my guess. Even if someone
doesn't collect all years, they usually would collect the first year.

  This theory fails to explain the high price for the 2001 sets.

2001 was the first year of the golden dollar and it was included in
the set. That may have something to do with it.

Except that 2000 was the first year of the golden dollar - and those
sets are dirt cheap (last I checked).

The 2001 Sac Dollar in the 2001 sets explains their high  prices.

<<This theory fails to explain the high price for the 2001 sets.>>

The most common explanation for 2001 is supply and demand.
The 1999 sets skyrocketed, so everybody overbought in 2000.
When the 2000 sets tanked, they underbought in 2001.

A competing explanation is that the 2001 Sac has achieved
a high premium value and is dragging the price of the complete
set up with it.
